TPO Roofing Pros and Cons What You Need to Know

Pros and Cons Commercial Roofing Products Have

Also known as thermoplastic polyolefin, TPO roofing is recently getting more and more popular. One of its main advantages is the fact that it is more affordable than PVC or EPDM. But like all the other types of roofing materials, TPO has its disadvantages as well.

Apart from its convenient cost, TPO is also flexible. Thus, it can be successfully installed both on commercial, and on residential buildings. There are also certain color variations, such as white, black or gray, to suit different styles and architectures. Regardless of the chosen color, TPO roofing systems are UV resistant.  

At the same time, this type of roof can be maintained with very little effort. There are no such things as mold development, tears, punctures and dirt accumulations. Thermal expansion and contraction can be very easily accommodated by this type of roofing material. Moreover, the fact that there is no algae or mold growth means there is no need for pressure washing of a TPO roof.

A major con of TPO is its being somewhat new on the market, which means it has not yet proved its resistance in time. There can also be differences in the quality of this material, from one manufacturer to another. The fact that it has a laminated surface makes TPO susceptible to cracks.  Talk with the professionals in commercial roofing such as New England Masonry and Restoration to find out what products they recommend for long lasting as well as fitting your budget.
